This exciting new premium-rated safari was inspired by Charles John Andersson, a Swede who in 1850, aged 23, set off to explore the uncharted territory of "Ovamboland" in Namibia. His courageous expeditions, valuable observations of the resident flora and fauna, and triumph over grave injury motivated the name for our deluxe mobile safari, which ventures into areas as unspoiled as when Andersson first saw them. Andersson¹s Africa offers an unrivalled experience of Namibia at her most wild and breathtaking. Of the starkly beautiful Namibian landscape, her desert-adapted wildlife and ecosystems, and her diverse communities.
It is an ultra-luxurious fully-serviced camping expedition delivering all the luxury and personal attention of a "mobile deluxe lodge". Accommodation is in plush tents with superior furniture and fittings, with en-suite flush W.C.s, hot showers and fine guest amenities. The guest dining and living areas are superbly equipped, and there are board games and a well-stocked library. Cuisine served is of the highest standards.
